Thanks A Latte

Happy Thursday Morning to you all!

Last night's Club Anya blog hop was a huge success! So many amazing and talented Anya fans out there! Wow! It was definitely an inspiring blog hop.

After completing my super embellished card for that hop (scroll down if you want to see it) I needed a bit of 'clean and simple' in my life again! haha

The layout for this card comes from this week's Mojo Sketch Challenge MOJO82. The stamp set is from My Favorite Things which I bought a long time ago and once attemped a card that failed miserably. I'm still on a 'show-some-love-to-the-uninked-(or under inked)-rubber-in-your-stash' kick so bare with me. I colored Miss No-Face's dress with Chocolate Chip and used a signo white gel pen to add the white polka dots. The background was colored with So Saffron ink. The bottom of the patterned paper was punched with a new edge punch from EK Success that I bought at Michaels. Added some ribbon, some dimensionals, a sentiment and I was done!

Thank you for stopping by today. Tomorrow I have not one, but two posts/cards for you! The first is for the Hanna Stamps Friday challenge and I'm this week's host! And the second one is a.....well, maybe I'll just keep that one a surprise!! ;)

Stamps: My Favorite Things 'Hot Stuff'
Inks: StazOn 'Jet Black', Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, Old Olive, Really Rust, Cool Caribbean
Papers: Canson Watercolor, Bazzil cs, PP - Basic Grey 'Porcelain Collection - Dresden'
Access: Ribbon, EK Success edge punch, dimensionals

Hehehe...I remember some talk in a forum a while back. Someone said this looked like a praying mantis with ta-tas and coffee. In American Idol could make a phone book into a card and it would wow me. I love how you did the yellow background.
